UV Light Indoor Air Purification
Air pollutants can travel in the air, they can travel on pets, and they can lodge in carpets and on furniture, making them easily breathable.
Without proper ventilation or indoor air quality control, these pollutants can quickly become a problem, especially for allergen or asthma sufferers.
The award-winning APCO system (Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation) is a new type of UV air purifier. APCO is installed directly in the ductwork of your central air conditioning system where it cleans and purifies the air as it flows by the UV lights.

Dust Particles / Dust Mite Debris
One of the most common indoor air pollutants is dust mite debris. Dust mites are microscopic creatures that feed on dust and constantly expel feces into the air. They bed in places like pillows, mattresses, carpets, and furniture, and breathing their debris is a common allergen trigger.
Mold is a common pollutant that is sometimes found inside homes. It grows in moist areas or dark, damp areas such as bathrooms, basements, and areas of high humidity. Spores from mold growth can become airborne, where it is easily breathed. Touching or inhaling mold spores can trigger allergies, asthma, or other health problems.
Tobacco smoke is one of the worst triggers for breathing problems. Not only does it aggravate breathing, but large exposure can lead to serious health problems like lung cancer and heart disease. Tobacco smoke is not just an airborne allergen; it also sinks into carpets and furniture, where it is harmful to all, especially to little children toddling on the floor.
Though pets may be 'part of the family', they are still animals, and pets are one of the worst sources for allergens. Not only do they carry allergens from the outdoors-such as grasses, grains, and spores-but they also produce pet dander. Pet dander is dead skin flakes from animals like dogs and cats; though pet dander can be carried into any home, with or without pets, it is greater in homes with pets and can be a harsh allergen.
Perhaps the worst summer allergens, pollen grains and grasses are allergens known for producing hay fever symptoms-sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, etc. They travel in the air, on clothes, and on pets and can easily become indoor pollutants that are easily breathed.
Odors are not harmful for your health and rarely cause allergic reactions, but they are indeed indoor air pollutants that are many times unpleasant. Odors are tiny gas particles that travel and linger in the air. They originate from several different sources-for example, cooking, garbage, bathroom, etc.-and can be bothersome and uninviting.
